What is the Human Rights Act?

The Human Rights Act 1998 brought the European Convention on Human Rights 1950 into British law. It guarantees your most fundamental human rights, including the right to life, the right not to be treated inhumanely, the right to freedom of expression, the right to liberty and the right to be treated equally.

Many of our cases involve breaches of more than one of these rights. Defendants include police forces, prisons, medical professionals, immigration officials or private companies acting on behalf of the State.

 

"THE TEAM ALWAYS RESPONDED TO US ALMOST IMMEDIATELY AND THE EMOTIONAL SUPPORT THEY GAVE WAS BEYOND OUR EXPECTATIONS OF SOLICITORS."

Upholding the principles of the Human Rights Act

We aim to uphold the principles of the Human Rights Act and fight against oppression and injustice. Our reputation for taking on the toughest of opponents is matched by our track record of success in securing compensation, apologies, admissions of wrongdoing, and policy changes to protect you and others from similar breaches of your rights in future.

Types of cases we can help you with:

“YOUR KNOWLEDGE OF THE LAW, YOUR UNDERSTANDING OF HOW TO FIGHT A CASE LIKE OURS, YOUR KINDNESS TO US ON A PERSONAL LEVEL AND YOUR STEADFAST APPROACH IS SOMETHING THAT WE WILL NEVER FORGET”.

When should you contact a human rights solicitor?

If you want us to investigate a claim for you, contact us as soon as possible. The law requires that cases are started at court within specific timescales.

For most civil claims for compensation for a breach of human rights, the claim must be issued at court within one year of the incident. It’s better to contact us much sooner than this. This is to ensure evidence is collected and the case is properly prepared.

If you think you might be out of time, don’t let this stop you from calling us – we’ll advise you if this is a problem and if we can take your case on.
